Application of RFID technology for full flight tracking of flight baggage
In order to further improve the quality of service and enhance the sense of passenger service, the cargo team of Yulin Airport Company applied RFID technology to track the whole process of flight baggage, and took a solid step toward the goal of intelligent travel.
Yulin Airport Company introduced the full-course tracking system of China Eastern Airlines to allow the baggage to “speak”. This technology enables the recording of baggage transport data to be more timely and accurate, thus creating “baggage big data” that is open to passengers. Passengers can check the status of checked baggage in real time by scanning or entering their own luggage tag number in the WeChat app "China Eastern Airlines".
The system realizes the automatic collection of closed-loop data of baggage delivery, sorting, loading, loading, unloading, baggage carousel and passengers' baggage departure process, which provides strong support for the automatic processing of baggage business. At the same time, the airport, aviation department and ground service can monitor every link in the baggage transportation process, and avoid the misplacement and mishandling of the baggage to the greatest extent. At present, China Eastern Airlines has completed the whole process of baggage tracking on the flights of Yulin Airport Company.
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is a communication technology that can identify specific targets and read and write related data through radio signals without establishing mechanical or optical contact between the system and specific targets. It is also the current international air baggage management field. The most advanced technical means. When the passenger checks the baggage, the staff will write the baggage tag number, flight number, departure port, arrival port, landing time and so on into the chip embedded in the luggage tag. When the baggage with the chip information is sorted and installed When arriving, extracting and other nodes, these baggage data information will be automatically collected into the back-end database, so as to accurately track the entire process of baggage transportation.
